Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD - Thursday. January 17. 1974 Oil price to jump -Blakeney OTTAWA (CP) - The wellhead price of Saskatchewan oil will jump to "the $9-a-barrel range" when the province's crude oil surcharge goes into effect Feb. 1, Premier Allan-Blakeney said Wednesday. The surcharge will be about $5 a barrel and will be added to the current wellhead price of about $3.70, the New Democratic Party premier told a National Press Club luncheon. Saskatchewan accounts for about 11 per cent of national crude oil production. The premier said his province has a moral and legal right to levy the surcharge, even though the federal government has reacted critically. But his government does not insist that Saskatchewan oil used in Canadian markets must be sold at the full world price of oil, he said. In return for a better deal on western freight rates, the province would be willing to sell oil for Canadian use at a reduced rate, perhaps $1 or $2 a barrel cheaper. He called for a national oil pricing policy to equalize oil prices in all parts of the country. He also urged the federal government to adopt a national petroleum subsidy program to soften the impact of rising oil prices. RICH WOULD PAY The subsidy should be financed from federal coffers and the money should be raised from all parts of the country based on their ability to pay, he said. Rich provinces would contribute more than poor provinces. He said he expects the federal-provincial energy confer-ence next week to be dominated by economic issues and will push for adoption of a national pricing policy. Alberta MPs to Europe OTTAWA (CP) - A Canadian parliamentary delegation is to visit Strasbourg, France, later this month to participate in a Council of Europe meeting. Led by Gerald Baldwin (PC - Peace River), the delegation includes Marcel Lambert (Edmonton West), the Conservatives' financial critic; MaxSaltsman (NDP - Waterloo Cambridge); Liberals Harold Herbert (Montreal Vaudreuil) and Fernand Leblanc (Montreal Laurier); and Senators Douglas Everett (L - Manitoba) and Paul Yuzyk (PC - Manitoba).

The $23-million guaranteed -loan program paid farmers on the basis of $15 an acre up to a maximum of |7,500 a farm. The provincial government will pay interest on the loans for the first year. Dr. Purnell said farmers have had sufficient time to take advantage of the program and the deadline will give the department time to process applications. He said termination of the assistance program does not affect an existing program to aid farmers with damp and tough grain. Minion named chairman PREMIER BLAKENEY While not confident such a policy would emerge, "it's not beyond the realm of possibility," he said. Canadian oil used within Canada is currently frozen at roughly |4 a barrel under a government-industry arrangement reached last September. Domestic oil is used in all areas west of the Ottawa Valley. The remainder of the country is dq>endent on high-priced foreign oil. Rising international prices are expected to open an East-West price gap by Feb. 1 of about 20 cents a gallon for gasoline and heating oil. Repeating a long-standing Saskatchewan position, the premier said the province is entitled to a fair price for oil. Petroleum is a depleting resource that, at current >roduction rates, will run out n 10 to 12 years, he argued. He said the province needs higher revenue for oil to build up its industrial base and narrow the gap between the living standard in Siaskatchewan and the rest of the country. "We won't be spending the extra money on luxuries." Incomes in Saskatchewan average $2,900 a year, $1,400 lower than in Ontario, he said. JULIE WRITES TOO WASHINGTON (AP) - A children's story about a White House dog by Julie Eisnhower is being published this month by the Saturday Evening Post. The story, titled Pasha Passes By, inspired by one of the three Nixon dogs, is 25-year-old Julie's first pubished work. She is a part-time $10,000-a-year assistant editor for the magazine. EDMONTON (CP) -Wayne Minion, Alberta's executive director of energy resources, was named yesterday as chairman of the Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission, proclaimed Tuesday by the provincial government. Bill Dickie, mines and minerals minister, said the act was one of the most important pieces of legislation introduced by the Conservative government. The act gives the commission authority to buy and sell crude oil discovered here. Wally Luthy and Russell Purdy, both of Calgary, were named commission members. Mr. Dickie said no date has been set for the commission to begin buying and selling oil. Mr. Minion has been a member of the federal government's technical advisory committee on petroleum supply and demand. GovU. discontinues aid EDMONTON (CP) - The provincial government is discontinuing its financial arrangements with a privately-owned home for multiple - handicapped children in Wetaskiwin, a government official said yesterday. Bruce Rawson, chief deputy minister of health and social development, said plans are being made to transfer the 44 2hildren at the home. He did not specify where the children, who range in age Tables turned in dispute from infancy to 10 years, will be placed. "We're now in a better position to make other plans because of the government's commitment to the field of the handicapped," Mr. Rawson said. "We have resources that were not available in the past." The provincial government pays $18 a day for each child at Welwyn Manor, owned and operated by Mrs. M. H. F. Peters. This arrangement will be discontinued within 30 days, Mr. Rawson said. EDMONTON (CP) -Several unions in the city have found themselves on the other side of the bargaining table, with their office employees requesting a conciliation award. Members of Local 458 of the Office ,and Professional Einp.loyees' International Union say negotiations on a new contract with the 16 Un- ions that employ them have broken down. The 47 office workers yesterday turned down a contract offer which President Marlene Case termed "absolutely unacceptable." The office workers have been without a conti^act since Dec. 31. Negotiations for a new contract have been held since early November. No sympathy for driver EDMONTON (CP) -Among the dozens of Edmonton drivers handicapped by severe weather and a seven-week-old strike of transit employees, one received little sympathy from passers-by this week. At a busy interesection in northeast Edmonton, with temperatures about 15 below zero, his car ran out of gas. On the bumper was a sticker that said: "Let the Eastern Bastards Freeze in the Cold." Earlier settlement seen EDMONTON (CP) - The world-wide energy crisis could force an early land-claims settlement between the federal government and Indians of the Northwest Territories and the Yukon, Dr. L. I. Barber, Canada's Indian claims commissioner, said yesterday. Dr. Barber said public pressure for quick access to energy resources in the Territories could cut negotiations short and force a settlement before Indians in the north have a chance to examine future needs. Development of energy resources in the Territories has been delayed until ownership is clearly determined, said Mr. Barber, who insisted the eventual settlement must ensure that Indians have the economic power to match government and international interests.
